Writing workshop with Bukit View Primary School, Singapore

Hello Bukit View Primary!

Thanks so much for making me feel so welcome, and for all your terrific stories. I had such a lovely day and really enjoyed meeting you all. And I *love* your theatre arts room! Yee ha!

Keep up the great writing and I hope to see one of your theatre productions one day soon!

With loads of thanks to the lovely folks at the Singapore National Arts Council for organising such a terrific program (and for springing a TV camera on us with at the last minute…nothing like a heart attack to encourage spooky writing 🙂 🙂 xx)

Things that go bump in the night…Words Go Round at UWCSEA, Singapore

Hello everyone from UWCSEA!

Are you cleaning your bathrooms? Are you taking care of your umbrella? Are you reading late at night, all alone under the covers, listening to your house creak and leaves rustle and creatures move…?

Are you writing some spooky stories to scare your friends (and me!)?

Thanks for a great day at your ENORMOUS school…I nearly got lost in the swimming pool!

Happy writing!

And more from the Singapore Writers Festival: Words Go Round!

Hi to the kids from Chatsworth East International School! Thanks for a great couple of days!!

One of the best things about being a children’s author is inspiring other children to write down their incredibly cool ideas. Each workshop, I’m always amazed by how many different ideas can come from the same few objects. And so many terrific stories…
Keep writing you guys! Write diaries, write poems, write me emails…and one day, I’ll be reading your books 🙂

Thanks to the National Arts Council of Singapore for creating such incredible opportunities for children and writers alike!
